State of Election Technology

Merle King, executive director, Center for Election Systems, Kennesaw State University, says the mechanics of collecting votes has been different in the terms of the sheer volume and velocity of discussion than it has in the past. He explains a voting system is a very specifically designed collection of components that does a simple set of tasks including capture voter intent, tabulate results of the ballot, produce reports, provide auditing, and permit the definition of an election.
